Julyssa Ramon attends School in San Antonio, TX, and is in the 7th Grade. She is an AB student whose favorite subject is science. In the summer she comes to Carrizozo to spend time with her grandparents. While in Carrizozo, she works at Isle of Sky Nursery in White Oaks learning about horticulture.
So far, she’s learned how to mix liquid fertilizers targeting nutrient deficiencies in different plants, and getting better at pruning, watering techniques and time management. The Nursery and Gardens are really busy in the summer, and she has a long list of things to get done each day and always takes her lunch break in the hammock with something to read.
